Bottle. Nice chewy smell of raisins and molasses right out of the bottle. Pours a deep brown under a thick brown head, wafting the smell of brown sugar and cola through the room Taste is a little fruity, with a bit of dark roast malt astringency following. Touch of chocolate, molasses or rum. Despite its low price and doubtless roundabout way of getting to my glass, it is indeed a nice, robust, well-made porter.

0,5l bottle from alko. Black coloured creamy liquid, big foamy tanned head, low carbonation. Aroma is mainly chocolate, some caramel and hops on the side. Taste is heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Too sweet for my personal liking, but a quality beer nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l bottle. Almost black colour, dark copper tone when viewed against a light source. Small off-white head, stays only on the sides, some lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, a touch of dried fruit and chocolate. Taste is rich, mostly sweet with some delicate roasted bitterness, slight notes of port wine. Very nicely rounded and balanced. Medium to full body, smooth texture with medium carbonation, long and slightly warming finish. Not quite as intense as some newer craft brewers’ takes on the style, still a classic and a great balance between rich taste and drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black, clear beer with a small brownish head on top. Aroma is malty chocolate, some roast and faint dark fruits. Flavour is bittersweet, hints of cookies and grainy notes. Very malty, loads of chocolate as well in the aftertaste. Simple and straightforward, but certainly nice. Soft carbonation, decent drinking.

Latvijas aldaru klasika. Trūkst pārsteiguma momenta no portera kaut vienā no pozīcijām, bet ir labs. Labāk tāds, kuram termiņš ir uz otru pusi, jo tad parādās izteiktākas garšas nianses, grauzdējums, rozīnes, vaniļa.
